African Skies Lyrics

Artist: Simple Minds
Album: Real Life

You say you're surprised
I thought I'd write today
Pieces of my life
That time can't fade away
Land lies dry - Africa
And the clouds roll by - Africa
I held you every night
I believed in all you'd say
Now the dust blows in my eyes
But those dreams won't fade away

The sky burns red - Africa
Don't you cry - Africa

Africa
When you cry it rains - Africa

Still the children smile - Africa
When you cry it rains - Africa
When the wild dogs howl - Africa
Still the clouds roll by - Africa
